always has a place in settings where young children learn and play, and thoughts and ideas for rich curriculum become apparent when they are given the freedom to follow their own paths while playing.It is the role of the teacher to thoughtfully listen to children as they play, determine their deep interests and then offer to them a plan, the curriculum that will enable them to choose the next direction their learning will take. The curriculum (tools, ideas, materials) that teachers bringto children helps them to scaffold their learning. That is, they are able to build one concept upon another, upon another, upon another with each block of the building process teaching them a little more and a little more. When it comes to this curriculum I like to because it gives more freedom as well as when it comes to putting a curriculum together for a child or a group of students it’s based on them ,on what they know already and what they need improvement in as well as meeting them at their level.

Emergent curriculum is never built on children’s interests alone; teachers and parents also have interests worth bringing into the curriculum. The values and concerns of all the adults involved help the classroom culture evolve. The curriculum is called emergent because it evolves, diverging along new paths as choices and connections are made, and it is always open to new possibilities that were not thought of during the initial planning processThe last leaning style is the one I like which is the Reggio Emilia approach. Starting with observing what children know, are curious about and what challenges them. Teachers recording
